We blog about Bosch’s Automotive Check-in Week earlier. The week long campaign ended with six bloggers competing in Bosch’s Amazing race.
Our team consists of two families, Daddy Andy and Boon Wee, together with Auntie Phoebe and Denver (from BPDG blog)
You can tell from our Twitter timeline above, that we had a lot of Fun along the way.
Read on to discover how we fare during the Race
The day started with a question from our boy.
Boon Wee : Daddy where are we going?
Daddy : We are going around Singapore with Auntie Phoebe and Denver, we will bring our car for servicing.
Boon Wee : Honda workshop ?
Daddy : Bosch
Wee : Bosch ? Oh, washing machine… (to be continued..)
Bloggers attended a briefing about “accident and claims”. We learn that the most important thing to do during any incidence is to stay calm, do not panic, and never argue about liability. If the situation permits, take some photographs for documentation.
We hope you know what to do when you have an emergency. Do not call SengkangBabies, call Uncle Bob at 6654 7777.
Task #01 – At Ethoz Tampines, we perform our first two tasks :
1a) Identify the correct psi, and pump up the tyres.
1b) The computer sensor indicate airbag malfunction. We are supposed to detect why airbag sensor is faulty.
We have to complete three task under 60s :
- jingle to the tune of “Bob the Builder”
- spin x5 rounds and throw Bob toy, partner need to catch 5 toys consecutively!
- assemble a battery box
#Task 03 – We head to Autovox at Tagore, and saw a pretty ride. Maybe we could drive a Porsche as one of our “Detours”?
At this Pit stop, Boon Wee and Denver represent our team to play a game of Mix and Match. They had fun guessing and looking for identical pictures.
We are very proud of them.
#Task 04 – We head to Loyang’s Autobacs next.
Auntie Phoebe can only draw what she see from some flash cards, and Daddy has to guess what are the drawings. Can you guess which drawing depicts
cooking engine-oil :p
It is not easy when you are running against time, but Uncle Victor gave us some hints
Team Cheryl proves to be “Too fast too furious”, the other competitors can only smell her exhaust. The winning team won for themselves a 2D1N stay at Resorts World Sentosa, with a pair of Universal Studios tickets, Congrats
Besides having fun, we learn new stuffs too!
Boon Wee and Daddy now know Bosch is involved in a lot of back-end automotive processes (and not only washing machines). We witness how mechanics diagnose our cars. We even got tips on how insurance companies access liability through BOLA (Barometer of Liability Agreement).
